no previous part Part 1 of As The Shop Turns series Part 2: Getting to know my saw on some plywood boxes. »

I have so much to do to get my shop organized, I have promised myself that I will not try to build cabinet grade, furniture grade shop cabinets, drawers, or shelves. Here’s the big HOWEVER: Okay, I bought C grade plywood, but I found some 3 1/6 thick cherry ply left over from our kitchen remodel that I can use for the sliding doors on my upper storage shelves, and since I’m doing that, I can’t resist adding lacewood edge banding to cover up the plywood edge, since I have some lacewood that I can rip for that purpose. The problem is once I do this, I have set a precedent!

Very easy to get carried away. That’s the fun of it.
